I visited the Dead Sea from Madaba. This is an experience you should not miss! Being far below sea level, it is humid and the atmosphere feels “thick”.
Because of the high salinity level, you are buoyant and float on the water without any effort.
It seems that Amman beach is the best place to visit although the 12 JD admission fee is quite expensive. There are facilities to lock your belongings, showers and facilities to change clothing.
Remember to be very careful not to get water in your eyes! It burns terribly. There are fresh water showers at the beach where you can wash off the salt water.
Amman Beach has a very nice fresh water pool and a restaurant where you can have a buffet lunch.
The road from Mt Nebo down to the Dead Sea is spectacular.
